When: Monday, July 28th - Thursday, July 31st, 2014
Where: Villanova University!
Calling all rising high school juniors, seniors and first year college students who are excited to make a difference in the lives of others! Enhance and learn new leadership skills while meeting students who care like you do from all over the country!
The ALSF Leadership Academy is a hands-on leadership program that includes sessions and workshops designed to create awareness of what leadership is, how to use it and how it can help students attain their goals.
The interactive program will admit 60 participants, and students from all corners of the United States are encouraged to apply. Residence Hall lodging and meals will be provided at the University as part of this leadership experience, though students will be required to arrange their own travel to and from Philadelphia.
The Leadership Academy will focus on the mission and goals of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to provide a better understanding of the Foundation’s vision and provide participants with key leadership skills to help them serve as youth spokespeople within their communities. The goal is that students become Ambassadors for Alex Scott and her mission to help find the cure for cancer.
“Dating back to Alex’s very first front yard lemonade stand, we have always had a keen understanding of the impact that kids can make on their community and the power they have to make a difference in the lives of others,” says Liz Scott, Alex’s mom. “As part of continuing what Alex started at that front yard stand, we are pleased to foster leadership in these promising young people and provide them with the tools to take Alex’s mission of finding cures for all kids with cancer back to the communities in which they dwell.”
